WATG : Glitterball Sock Yarn

Wool and the Gang

WATG : Glitterball Sock Yarn


The Gang’s first ever British sourced and spun yarn; Glitterball Sock Yarn is a disco-ready remix of 100% naturally renewable wool and look-at-me lurex. Scoured, combed and spun in the Yorkshire countryside, the soft and silky wool is lovingly produced by eco-conscious suppliers and the finest breed of sheep. They have added a subtle hint of sparkle, so you can shimmy on from dusk ‘til dawn. See you on the dancefloor.
